LEAVENWORTH — Dave Winters is out to turn the Leavenworth oom-pa into a blues riff Sept. 15. The event organizer booked a huge lineup for the Leavenworth Blues Festival’s first year. Duffy Bishop, Ty Curtis, Big Mumbo, Doctor Funk and Slack Daddy will rock the Festhalle starting at noon.
Outside, three barbecue pits will serve finger-licking eats. A beer garden, cigar bar and vendors will also set up shop at the one-day event. The $25 ticket allows re-entry to the Festhalle.
